One of the major problems developers are facing today is moving from iPhone development to Windows Phone development - without having to change their development environment.

MoSync® Reload (available from our Download page) lets developers edit HTML5 and JavaScript code on their PC, Mac or Linux machine and then instantly see the result of changes made on any number of devices or emulators. It’s just like pressing “reload” in a web browser, but for native mobile apps!
With Mosync Reload, you can access native features such as camera, SMS, file system and sensors and create user interfaces using real, native UI controls. Once you’re happy with the application you’ve developed, you can use the free MoSync SDK to take your project as-is, and build standalone applications for distribution through App Store, Google Play and Windows Marketplace.
